oh_deanna: (the black keys // skull and mayhem)
So as most of you guys know by now, I am a rabid Black Keys fan, have been since I was 16/17. I saw them for the first time last night with my Emma, and they were awesome!

The opening act was The Royal Headaches, an Aussie band from Melbourne that were really awesome and energetic and fun, I recommend you guys check them out!

I bought a shirt, some badges and their latest album El Camino, with the extra tour rehearsal tracks. I almost bought their poster but it had a giant fucking rooster on it so NO THANK YOU!

It was the best concert I've ever been to, and not just because they're my favourite band. Everyone was so happy - you could look across the stadium and all you could see where people hugging and dancing and singing and having fun, it was the best experience ever. Emma and I spent the whole time singing and dancing to every single song (we were so exhausted by the end of it, but it was totally worth it).

We did not have the best seats, we were a fair bit back but the place where they played was not that big, I think it was like 14,000 capacity so we actually weren't that far from the stage. I did take heaps of videos but to be honest they're not very good (I mean, the sound is excellent but the footage is quite shaky due to a combination of dancing and being so far away, but I'll post one. And I'll also post one from this other girl's. I spoke to her on tumblr, she was in the front row and even she said that it was the most peaceful concert ever. She was right at the railing the whole time and no one shoved her or got in her way or anything. I could see into the crowd and there was like no on full on moshing, they were just dancing and having a blast. So yes, here are some videos from the night on video (highlight would have to be the giant disco ball!). The first one is from the girl, and the second shitty one is mine and it's really short but I just loved the way his voice sounded, especially around the 0:30 mark. So amazing!

"And I remember when I met him, it was so clear that he was the only one for me. We both knew it, right away. And as the years went on, things got more difficult - we were faced with more challenges.

I begged him to stay. Try to remember what we had at the beginning.

He was charismatic, magnetic, electric and everybody knew it. When he walked in every woman’s head turned, everyone stood up to talk to him. He was like this hybrid, this mix of a man who couldn’t contain himself. I always got the sense that he became torn between being a good person and missing out on all of the opportunities that life could offer a man as magnificent as him.

And in that way I understood him and I loved him. I loved him, I loved him, I loved him.

And I still love him. I love him."




Beautiful, beautiful, flawless. I cried at the end. Love her so much ♥

I know I'm jumping on the bandwagon a little late, but in an effort to cheer myself up, I've joined Pottermore! I love it, it's so much fun right now!

My username is FeatherJinx26702. Add me if you're on there!

First of all, let me just get this out of the way:.....


I AM GOING TO SEE THE BLACK KEYS IN OCTOBER MY DAD IS BUYING ME TICKETS FOR MY BIRTHDAY WHICH IS ALSO IN OCTOBER I AM GOING WITH MY BEST FRIEND IN THE WHOLE WORLD (EMMA) TO SEE MY FAVOURITE BAND IN THE WHOLE WORLD (THE AFOREMENTIONED BLACK KEYS). I AM CRYING TEARS OF JOY RIGHT NOW NO JOKE.

Anyway, so tickets when on sale last week but there are still tickets left so I'm going to hopefully get them tomorrow. I am so happy right now. I've loved the Black Keys since I was in year 12, and according to last.fm, I first scrobbled one of their songs (So He Won't Break, apparently) on the 14th of October 2008. It's been a whirlwind romance ever since. In celebration of the fact that I am actually going to be in the same place as Dan and Patrick in October, here are some of my favourite Black Keys songs. If you haven't heard of them before / never really got them, I implore you to give them a chance. They are amazing. They're tight as hell, every single song is amazingly raw and awesome and [insert other awesome sounding adjective here]. They're this perfect combination of garage rock and blues and they're the best. These comments on youtube describes them better than I ever could:





Here they are live, being flawless and amazing as always:



LISTEN TO THESE SONGS. THEY WILL BLOW YOUR MIND. )
oh_deanna: (glee // quinn likes girls)


This was my JAM when I was in primary school. Also, holy crap, I've forgotten how awesome her voice is! That bit in the middle where she just goes for it always sends tingles up my spine.
oh_deanna: (glee // quinn says that's a fact)


Everyone needs to watch this. Wuthering Heights / Kate Nash mash-up. Pretty sure it's going to be impossible to listen to the original Kate Bush song without imagining this video.

Also:
Rude Boy... performed by the Bee Gees
The original version of Beep (later covered by the Pussycat Dolls)

yay!

guys I know not all of you are watch Glee, and I know that a lot of you don't like Finchel, but please, let me have my moment:


under a cut because spoilers and gifs )


I ship everyone with everyone else, so anything that happens relationship wise in the show makes me happy. And it's ridiculous because I've never been like this with a show before, ever. So yeah, I ship Finchel, but I also ship Puckleberry and Faberry, and St. Berry and whatever the name for Rachel/Blaine is. And don't even get me started on Kurt. So yeah. I LOVE ALL the ships!
oh_deanna: (mine // peace up)
So first of all, I have the most amazing friends in the world. For my 21st, three of them chipped in to buy me tickets to see the Foo Fighters at the Sydney Football Stadium - I just got back, and let me tell you - my mind was blown. I went with Amanda, who despite not liking the Foo Fighters as much as I do went and had a good time, which was really cool.

I've seen them once before (they were my first concert) and the energy and love and general awesomeness the put into their performances blows my mind. Dave Grohl is such a charismatic frontman, and I love the way he and Taylor bounce off of each other.

This is a little video (one of many) I took. It was just after they'd come back on for an encore. Dave was standing on this giant hydraulic stage 25 feet in the air, and he was singing Times Like These, just him and his guitar. And the whole stadium was singing with him, and it was the most amazing thing.

oh_deanna: (mine // nightmares forever)
Okay. So. Tonight, my best friend Bradley and my mother and I went and saw Paranormal Activity 3. Pants were shat, there was lots of shrieking and screaming and clutching of the best friends hand. But instead of my 'review', or whatever, I thought I'd just some of the stuff the three of us came out with while watching the movie, because OMG I can't stop laughing thinking about it.


Mum: I'm having a heart attack! Deanna, I think I'm having a heart attack! 

Bradley: Okay, if I were him, I'd leave them all and become a nun.
Me: What?!
Bradley: I'd go to a nunnery.
Me: You mean a monastery. To become a monk.
Bradley: No. I mean a nunnery, to become a nun. No one would ever think to look for me there.

Mum: What's this movie called again? Phenomenal Activity?

(at this point, we were facing each other, not the screen, and we were cowered down in our seats with both of our arms up in front of us)
Me: I can't look anymore. No. No more.
Bradley: I don't want to look. I'm done.
Me: Well one of us has to look!
Bradley: Not me, I looked last time!
Me: I'm not looking.
Bradley: Okay, we'll look together.

Bradley: No. No. I'm not having fun anymore. Deanna, take me home. I want to go home.

Me: He's hot!
Bradley: I don't care if he's hot, right now he deserves to die.


And to sum it all up:

Guy sitting behind us: This is fucked. This is a fucked up movie. Everyone's fucked. Fuck this.


It was so good. So good. Definitely go see it if you haven't already!

I'm not a country fan, but do I have a soft spot for Shania Twain. And oh my god I love Katie Gavin. Just. Everything she does. I love her cover of this song sfm. ♥

There are so many talented musicians on youtube, it blows my mind. Does anyone have a favourite, or even just an awesome cover a song on youtube? Link me! I love discovering new music.
oh_deanna: (black and white // *claps*)
Confession: I'm totally obsessed with the British royal family. I don't know if it's because I'm Australian and we're part of the Commonwealth; I've grown up reading about them and hearing about them and seeing them on the television. I used to tell my mama that Diana was an angel. I remember so well the day she died, I was devastated. I convinced my mama to let me stay up all night to watch her funeral - I don't remember this, but I managed to stay up and watch the ENTIRE thing.

So. I didn't watch the entire ceremony (like, the guests arriving and whatnot because honestly I don't care I just want to see Catherine and William). Her dress was GORGEOUS. She's beautiful. She has such poise and elegance and I think she looked aboslutely stunning, but in an understated way.

I cracked up watching William trying so hard not to turn around and look at Catherine, and Harry muttering stuff in his ear. They seem to love each other so much. I LOVE THEM OMG DKSGH:SDJKBGJD

Anyway, I cried. Cried buckets. My mama is still watching it, sobbing hysterically. I just watched them exchange vows and thankfully it wasn't too long. Now I'm just waiting for them to come out onto the balcony for the smoochies ♥ ♥ ♥


EDIT: OKAY SO THEY WENT OUT ON THE BALCONY AND I WAS LIKE JESUS CHRIST GUYS JUST KISS ALREADY AND THEN THEY LOOKED AT EACH OTHER AND KIND OF SMIRKED AND THEN BAM! SMOOCHIES! That's it for me, that's all I wanted to see. I'm happy now :D

EDIT 2: my mama is so lazy, she actually TEXTED ME FROM HER ROOM to say "they kissed two more times!!" lolololol
oh_deanna: (glee // blaine + kurt = ♥)
All of this (including the gif) is going behind a cut for a week or so because I really really really don't want to spoil it for anyone who may not have watched it yet.


spoilers under the cut regarding ep 2x16 )
